Citizens for Clean Indoor Air

Thank you for your interest in protecting Mesquite's workers, residents, and visitors from secondhand smoke. Secondhand smoke is a public health problem.

 

Survey: Mesquite voters want smoke-free casinos, Desert Valley Times, September 2, 2016

Working at a casino presumably has its ups and downs, just like any other job or career.

About one-third of the Mesquite workforce, however, is being exposed to life-threatening health risks every day through inhalation of secondhand smoke, and the Mesquite Citizens for Clean Indoor Air is now armed with results from a survey that found a clear majority of the city's voters strongly support its efforts to ban indoor smoking in all workplaces, including the city's biggest businesses.

A May 2016 Public Opinion Strategies survey of nearly 300 registered voters in Mesquite found that 62 percent favor a local ordinance requiring total smoke-free air in all workplaces, including bars and casinos. An overwhelming majority, 81 percent, also believe secondhand smoke to be a public health hazard, and 55 percent said they’re more likely to vote for a candidate who supports a local ordinance requiring completely smoke-free workplaces for all Mesquite workers.
